Fast beautiful dangerous
This is the Mercedes CLR racing car which had flipped over three times at Le Mans in 1999. So hence it was given the title – ‘fast beautiful dangerous’. One of the most common subjects in photorealist paintings are cars. However they are usually rendered without any people in the picture – Bert has shown a propensity for doing things with his own style. Here the Mercedes CLR racing car is surrounded by many people – drivers, officials and mechanics.
Mark Webber will remember this car quite well – he performed two separate backflips in one of these Mercedes CLR’s.
This painting has an abstract painting September 11, 2001 on the reverse side.
